Hello! I hope you are all having a great weekend so far! I’m back with another 10 cards, 1 kit. Simon Says Stamp’s November card kit is filled with fun items to create some fall themed cards. The stamp set, also called Thanks & Leaves, includes a variety of solid image leaf stamps and gorgeous sentiments. However, there were two items in this kit that didn’t play nice with the rest of the items–the butterfly adornments and the Snarky Small Talk stickers. I love them both, I made cards with them both, but they weren’t fall themed cards. Lol! See cards #4 and #11. I try to incorporate everything included in the kits in my cards. I also felt a bit coloring deprived with this kit, but I do manage to use my Prismacolor pencils on card #10.
I’ve included pictures of all my cards, as well as the inside designs. If you’re interested in what colors of inks I use, they are also listed below.
